yeah, I went last year, it was a fun event. The name suggests it is like a masters event (ie. invite only) but its not, its just their big 40k event (and lesser systems tongue.gif )

We all enjoy our hobby in different ways, e.g. competitive gamers, social gamers or maybe you prefer the painting and modelling side. However you enjoy your hobby just remember that not everyone views things in the same light, and the easiest way to deal with this is agree to disagree and get on with your hobby !

Yeah I was there as a spectator last year. I remember there was a player who tabled an Imperial Guard list.

He didn't take that win well, decided to cause a scene, accused his opponent of having a poor attitude by bringing a "ridiculous" guard list and declared how if they ever tried to bring this overpowered list to a mainland tournament he'd personally ensure they were banned from entering.

Doesn't sound like he had much fun at all at this event! Let me see if I can recall his name, started with a D...

I think it was Diffy. You wouldn't know him would you?

You see this type of retard commentry is what can give an event and/or a player a bad reputation. Everybody has bad games against hideous opponents from time to time, it's a fact of the hobby because it attracts all personality types. I seriously fail to see how your comment anything other than a blatent and deliberate attempt at having a go at someone, especially over a single instance that may have occured months ago.

I played last year, right next to the table where this game took place. My game was concluded within the first hour and I watched the game you mentioned unfold and do not actually recall having witnessed such a scene take place either after the game, during the game or during the whole tournament.

So I'm quite inclined to regard your little post as b^%$s&&t.

Having played in the Tassie States for the last eight years, I would not hesitate to reccommend the event. It's been well organised and run with support of the local hobby shop (Area 52) and their staff, plus the variety of voluenteers who give their own time to judge, shift tables and set-up terrain.

On a nicer note, the answer is YES.

Don't let the title fool you that only Tasmanians are allowed.

This is nothing compared to some of the crap happening at other 40k tournaments (e.g loaded dice, peeps being banned etc..)

Get over it.

WTF?!?!?!?! for starters, this never happened, and I am confused on where this is coming from...

I took my deathwing, a pretty soft deathwing list, and don't remember getting tabled by an imperial guard list... I also don't remember the conversation that I would have them banned from the event... I had a discussion with a guard player (I assume this is you...) that you took a no comp list to a comp tourney, and then wondered why you got a harsh comp score, then we debated what comp was... I am not an advocate for comp, never have been, so once again, really confused on these comments and if this is a troll...

He's someone who QQ'd on 5th ed and just goes as a spectator to events and complain about the system

I'm just confused... In re reading his comments I think he is referring to me tabling my oponent, however I don't remember doing that either... I remember winning my first game against a guard player because he spread out and I had outflanking ravenwing bikes which melta'd russ or something the turn they arrived. Then after the event when talking to him I asked him why and he said because he wanted to lose round 1... didn't make sense to me, a deliberate submarine apparently...

He does it religiously so his 6 Russ can roll around unhindered as he avoids the top tier lists

He's in it for the painting score/awards, the only time 6 russ loaded with sponsons, gear and only 2 troops in an army can do well tongue.gif (He does consistently place 4th/5th and is on the ATC team, he wants to grudge match Difsta tongue.gif)

he can grudge me round 1 for Tas if he wants, and most likely at ATC tongue.gif Especially if he still likes losing round 1 deliberately tongue.gif
